Open your ears and prepare to receive ideas, Ōtautahi, because another TEDx event is coming your way later this month.
TEDx is the locally organised, independent version of those TED talks you find on YouTube. If you’ve ever been blown away by one of those then TEDxChristchurch might be the event for you, and better yet, we’ve got a way for you to enjoy it at the library, specifically Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre.
Starting on Saturday, 22 October we’ll be screening talks from the 2013 and 2015 TEDxChristchurch events on our big screen at Te Hāpua: Halswell Centre. Morning sessions will run 11am-12:30pm and afternoon sessions run 2-3pm.
So pull up a seat and listen to talks covering all sorts of topics – music, architecture, science, feminism, democracy, language and more.
Then on Saturday, 29 October we will be livestreaming this year’s TEDx event from the Isaac Theatre Royal. This year’s speakers again cover the spectrum of academics, entertainers, researchers, creators, and innovators.
We’ll then continue with the programme of 2013 and 2015 talk screenings until 5 November.
